Local Waupaca Foundry Gives Back for Christmas
12/13/2018- Marinette’s Waupaca Foundry is providing more than just employment – they’re providing a little extra comfort to those in need this holiday season. The company is donating around 140 hams across six community agencies serving low-income, disabled, or senior residents. Plant 4 Human Resource Manager Phil Eatherton says Waupaca purchases holiday hams or turkeys for their employees each year and any extras, along with an additional 100 ordered specifically for donation, help ensure every family has a Christmas dinner to enjoy.
While this is traditionally the season of giving, Eatherton says Waupaca tries to make it a point to give back not just at Christmastime, but year-round.
The local Waupaca Foundry plant has been hosting this Christmas donation program for area food pantries since 2010.
